Bungalow nation by Diane Maddex( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering stylish yet affordable housing for the average person, the bungalow took the nation by storm in the early 20th century, and was rediscovered in earnest in 1996 with the publication of the authors' American Bungalow Style. That book, the first lavishly illustrated showcase of bungalows, reminded us all of the seductive appeal that had made these charming little homes so popular. This much-anticipated follow-up book takes readers into the living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and baths of the best and most characteristic bungalows from five American neighborhoods where this housing type has flourished: Washington, DC, Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Pasadena. Bungalows, while modestly sized, are known for their integrity of design and craftsmanship, and their shape lends itself to a variety of stylistic treatments, from Colonial Revival to Craftsman to Tudor, all displayed in Bungalow Nation.--From publisher description

Greene & Greene : developing a California architecture by Bruce Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many books have been written about the California architects Greene & Greene, exploring their style and masterworks such as the Gamble House and Blacker House. The heart of this book is the work of Greene & Greene in their early years, up to 1906, the development of what we call today the "Greene & Greene style," and Pasadena's Duncan-Irwin house where it first all came together. It is the ground upon which their later grander work would be built. Bruce Smith is a specialist on the life and work of Charles and Henry Greene; his book on their architecture, Greene & Greene Masterworks (1998), was one of the New York Times Editor's Choice architectural books of the year. He is the author of The Japanese Bath, Arts and Crafts Ideals, and The Beautiful Necessity: Decorating with Arts and Crafts, as well as numerous magazine articles. He lives in the state of Washington. Alexander Vertikoff's award-winning images have been on the cover of every issue of American Bungalow magazine as well as dozens of covers and hundreds of articles in magazines such as Architectural Digest and The New York Times. His books include American Bungalow Style, Greene & Greene: Masterworks, Stickley Style, and Craftsman Style. He lives in New Mexico. -- Book Description

Gamble House : Building paradise in California( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than a century the Gamble House has stood on a promontory overlooking the Arroyo Seco, a thin riverbed that meanders down from the San Gabriel Mountains through Pasadena, California. For much of that time the house has been open to the public. More than a million visitors have toured the house since it became an architectural site in 1966. They come for a variety of reasons, but primarily to appreciate the uncommon mixture of art and craft that is the hallmark of architects Charles and Henry Greene. In the first publication about the house since its restoration in 2004, The Gamble House documents the history, design, craftsmanship, and enduring aesthetic impact of this renowned cultural landmark. New photography by Alexander Vertikoff illuminates a series of scholarly essays based on recently discovered archival materials."
